Default Online studying helps

Hi!

I am interested in getting my technicians license, what are the best online places where I can read about the basics of radio and what ham radio is all about?

Thanks!

If you need something mobile, go to the App store on your phone, and get the one that is a little white box with he yellow diamond and the schematic of the antenna and resistor and ground in it. Helped me to pass on my first try and was done with the test in maybe 20 minutes or so? Couldn't have been a full half hour?

There's a pretty good video series which starts here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VehtvfYAKsQ

I watched the general license series before taking that test and it helped quite a bit.
